The dancers in this year's Dancing With the Geneva Stars very well could be the most competitive group in the five-year history of the event.
And if you're smart enough to sign up quickly, you'll get a chance to see all four past champions and compare for yourself.
If you've never been, DWGS has become Geneva's top social event of the year. It's terrific fun and something everyone in Geneva should see at least once. Put it on your Geneva bucket list.
This year's competition will include an encore dance from past champions. Want to know which couple was the "best ever"? Well, it could be any of the following:
- Laura Rush & Derek Swanson - 2012 Champions
- Jane & Peter Cladis - 2011 Champions
- Harry & Marcia Smith - 2010 Champions
- Mary & Tom Rogers - 2009 Champions
The champions will be performing a dance specially choreographed by Linda Cunningham, founder and artistic director of State Street Dance Studio.
This year's event takes place 7 p.m. Feb. 9 at Eagle Brook Country Club. Open seating is $40 per guest which includes hors d’oeuvres, dessert and cash bar and an evening of great entertainment.
The easiest way for you to make a reservation and vote is to go directly to our web site www.genevarts.org.
Voting will continue until Feb. 8. One dollar counts as one vote. Every year, the event has sold out, so make your reservations early. The committee promises an evening of fun-filled entertainment with 12 local celebrities competing for your votes.
Also new this year is the chance to win an iPad. For $10, you have a chance to play the heads-tails game and go home a winner. And, finally, to end the evening of entertainment, there will be a twist dance-off followed by an evening of open dance.
There is a limit of 370 ticket reservations available. Ticket price is $40 for open seating, which includes hors d'oeuvres, dessert and an evening of fun entertainment. A cash bar is also available.
